Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The proportion of treated subjects who became pain-free [ Time Frame: 2 hours after dosing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain evaluated using a 4-point International Headache Society (IHS) scale where grade 0 = no pain, 1 = mild pain, 2 = moderate pain, 3 = severe pain


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The proportion of treated subjects who became pain-free [ Time Frame: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 3, 4, 24, and 48 hours post-dosing. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain evaluated using a 4-point International Headache Society (IHS) scale where grade 0 = no pain, 1 = mild pain, 2 = moderate pain, 3 = severe pain

  • Time to pain free (IHS grade 0 headache) following dosing (using wristwatch) [ Time Frame: Time to pain free following dosing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain evaluated using a 4-point International Headache Society (IHS) scale where grade 0 = no pain, 1 = mild pain, 2 = moderate pain, 3 = severe pain

  • Proportion of subjects with pain free relief (IHS grade 1 or 0 headache) [ Time Frame: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 24, and 48 hours post dosing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain evaluated using a 4-point International Headache Society (IHS) scale where grade 0 = no pain, 1 = mild pain, 2 = moderate pain, 3 = severe pain
